Clad in 28,000 glass panels, the tower has 160 floors and more than 500,000 sq m of space for offices and flats. The tower also lays claim to the highest occupied floor, the tallest service lift, and the world's highest observation deck - on the 124th floor. The world's highest mosque and swimming pool are located on the 158th and 76th floors.
The Burj Dubai is now in the league of the most popular global New Year celebrations and Downtown Dubai will take centre stage and light up the Dubai skyline with an unprecedented and breathtaking ambiance fused perfectly with a the performance by Diana Yukawa and Deep Forest.
The award winning solo violinist and songwriter has had 3 successful solo albums with Sony Music/BMG. Diana’s latest album “The Butterfly Effect”, featuring original music written by the violinist, comprises a new modern sound for the violin, far removed from her previous classical albums. But the violinist isn’t stopping there – Diana is back in the studio pushing the sound even further for her next album.
At only 26, Diana has led an extraordinary life. Born in Tokyo to an English ballet dancer and a Japanese banker just 3 weeks after the 1985 Japan Airlines disaster that took her father’s life, Diana has crossed cultural boundaries in her personal life and is pushing to cross even further in her professional life as a talented and much celebrated violinist and songwriter.
Its sure to be a busy and exciting year for the young violinist.
